that senator dianne feinstein was forced to call a brief recess. after things got under control brennan had to deal with tough and necessary questions and here is part of his exchange with senator mark o-rubio about the benghazi terrorist attack, watch this. >> have you talked to folks in the cia about their impressions of the quality of information we're getting from our foreign partners? >> yes, on a regular basis. >> and they've indicated-- would it surprise you to know that they've indicated to us repeatedly over the last couple of years that i've been here that the information he we get directly is much better than anything we get from our foreign partners on some of these issues. >> that's why we work with the foreign partners and get the-- >> i'm concerned because al harzi, i think how you pronounce the name and a suspect in the benghazi attack and he was taken into custody by the tunisians. >> yes, he was taken into custody. >> did we not ask for access to them. >> the tunisians didn't have the law. >> they released him. >> he's still in tunisia. >> you're fully comfortable with thi
of wayne lapierre and the national rifle association that makes gun advocates like diane feinstein, to say it will be an uphill battle. >> they come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you. >> reporter: but he is on a mission to convince his colleagues. >> we need to wake members up to the fact if they want to do the right thing and join us on gun reform, there is not a political referendum like maybe a decade or two ago. >> reporter: during the 2010 campaign, the nra flooded the area with ads regarding guns, and sherrod brown, and figures for the nonresponsive politics shows that the nra spent over $4 million on the senate campaigns, losing seven out of eight races where they spent over $100,000. money is not the only way to measure influence. >> i think that the nra as a single issue group, is extremely potent as a political force out there. and even though their success rate was less than 50% with their outside spending in the last election, they have these members, millions of members they can mobilize who are strongly motivated on this issue. >> reporter: man
you look at the feinstein bill, he is supporting? that is exactly what it does. i mean, i think what they'll do is turn the universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people and law-abiding people don't want that. i mean, my -- >> absolutely do not -- forgive me, sir, you take something that is here, and you say it will go all the way over there. there is no indication, i mean, i can understand you are saying, that is a threat but there is nothing anyone in the administration has said that indicates they are going to have a universal registry. >> and obamacare wasn't a tax until they needed it to be a tax. >> chris: the supreme court decided that. >> you cannot trust these people. my god, dianne feinstein, said, if i could go door-to-door and pick 'em all up, i would do it. can i tell you what i think will work -- >> i'll ask you a couple of questions, the murder today, one of the things that concerns people, it seems every day we talk about a shooting. oftentimes, mass shooting. >> right. >> chris: day after day after day and the frustration is you d
support senator feinstein's assault weapons ban legislation. federal law prohibits dangerous individuals such as convicted felons and those with mental health this qualifiers for possessing firearms. background checks are required on dealers, no check is required for private sales such as those for online or print ads or gun shows. is a major problem. from november, 2011-november, 2012, an estimated 16.6 million transactions occurred without a background check. this occurs for private individuals rather than licensed gun dealers. it allows 40 percent of those requiring guns to bypass checks, it is like allowing 40% of passengers to board a plan without going through security. would we do this? last october in brookfield, wisconsin, seven women were shot by present -- by a prohibited purchaser was under a restraining order. the shooter answered an online ad was able to buy a gun without a check of very quickly. had the sale been required to have a check, the tragedy could have been prevented. background checks work. they stop nearly 2 million prohibited purchasers between 1994-2009. we al
that. >> didianne feinstein said if i could o go door to door and pick them all up i would do it. can i say one more. >> chris: i have one more question. forgive me, sir, i'm going to conduct the interview. every day we talk about a shooting. often times mass shooting day-after-day after day and the frustration s you don't think that limiting guns has anything to do with that. i understand there is some things you think do work and we will talk about that. the murder yesterday of former navy seal chris kyle. this was a man who wrote american sniper. the man credited with the largest number of confirmed kills of any american soldier ever. he and another man gunned down at a texas gun range. >> if you want to stop violence in this country here is what you do. first, if you want to protect our kids you put armed security in schools. i'm not talking about arming teachers. i'm talking about police officers and certified professional security people. there is not a parent that sends off their kid to school that wants the kids to be unprotected. just in atlanta this past week armed security st
the bill that senator feinstein just recently introduced grandfathers in all the existing assault type of weapons so it will be a while before you see any impact. a majority of homicides that we have at least here in philadelphia and from chiefs around the country that i've spoken to, predominantly handguns, semiautomatic handguns, nine millimetre being the one that we recover most often. so there has to be a combination of things. there is no one thing that can be done that's going to have an impact. the bottom line is we need decent laws, reasonable laws in place, maybe inconvenient to some folks that have to, you know, go through background checks even with private sales, but it's something that we have to do to make sure that the guns are not falling into the wrong hands. reporting a gun lost or stolen, to me, another reasonable thing that i believe would definitely help us in law enforcement. and then really going after the people that are out here committing crimes, using a handgun, using assault weapons. it doesn't matter what they use. once they're caught and convicted they nee
neighbor -- i always like to say dianne feinstein is my neighbor, but i point out it is at work. she works in the offices as opposed to home. she works next to me, and she is working very hard on that piece of the bill, and knows very well what you are talking about representing the state of california. working with senator rubio and others on that bill. i know they are in the middle of negotiations so i do not want to put words in her mouth, but i know that the family concern is a piece. >> it is interesting that the afl-cio have a very proactive, progressive position on this and are out advertising and moving that now. i asked senator mccain. he said, they are in exactly the same place. this is important. it is a larger picture where seemingly fighting pieces, kennedy and others with his early legislation, there is more goodwill to try to move this forward. >> it would be in a bigger bill. i think it is a good thing we have these two bills that are arguably complicated but do separate things. the agriculture workers and the one with senator hatch, the expert bill. they are completely rel
example. senator feinstein's subcommittee -- she had a hearing last year. general cartwright and admiral pickering -- or ambassador pickering testified, and they went into this. any action we would take would have to be negotiated, it would have to be bilateral, no unilateral action, and they made that point again on the record in front of senator feinstein's subcommittee. and i support that. i agree with that. >> i have another statement from the report. the united states icbm rapid reaction posture remains in operation and runs a real risk of accidental or mistaken launch. i think that statement is pretty clear. do you agree with that? >> yes. i mean, i the accidental launch and those kinds of things are always to be concerned about, and we need to assure as we have over the years that that does not happen, but on the russian -- >> that we will run a real risk of accident or mistaken launch? >> if you put just "risk," but there's always a risk. when we are talking about nuclear weapons, and the consequences, as you know, you do not get a lot of second chances. we need to be very sure a
as though the chair wom woman, dianne feinstein, has john brennan's back. she released a statement talking about the fact that she had seen information on -- that proves the legality of this drone use. so that definitely helps brennan big time on the dynamic of his nomination at his confirmation hearing. >> lots of confirmation hearings about to take place and jack lew, too, for treasury. we'll watch this in the coming days. guys, thank you very much. >>> the push for gun control is getting star power in washington today to call for increased gun regulations. cnn's crime and justice correspondence is joe johns. this is all part of a bigger push. >> wolf, we've seen it before, we'll likely see it again. this time it was a whole cast of artists and others performing gun control to try to kweep the pressure on congress. stars speaking out in washington. it's the latest push by gun control groups to lobby the congress. >> doing nothing will fail. doing nothing has failed. >> if we as a people don't act after sandy hook, then we as a people are broken. >> i would like assault weapons eliminated
